Thank you for posting this! I haven't posted in a long time; partly because I am going through some troubled times where I am back in the closet an partly because I have have pretty bad anxiety! It sure is helpful to see people do care though.

Thank you so much Ellie (wish I could have found this post when you first wrote it), after several years of lurking and soaking up info, I have finally gotten over my paralyzing fear of posting and created an account.  Making a mental note to give you a "+" as soon as I'm able, you are the best!

Thank you for posting a link to your open letter.

Most times that i have posted anything with real feelings on this forum, I have removed it almost immediately because of what someone's response was, or because there was no responses I figured nobody cared to deal or interact with me/my issues.

My world was often no bigger than my room with a closed door.  Intentionally had no internet for 3 years. No TV for 10+. After the past few years on the road, I have withdrawn again.
I push others away because I think I'm beating them to it.
Good to be aware of this at least!

I like your new profile name, Roll!
